2011 vintage poured into my Duvel tulip.

A-Pours out a nearly translucent,brownish red body that gives off on almost purple glow at it's edges and serves as the foundation for 1 1/2 inches of quickly receding off-white foam that reduced to a thin collar of loose bubbles and left wispy remnants of lacing.

S-Sweet citrus,toffee,cherry liquer,whole grain toast,glazed nuts,pipe tobacco,golden raisin and
some pine resin.

T-Candied cherries,grapefruit zest,toffee glazed nuts,caramelized grains,white pepper,raisin,pine and an earthy,herbal hop finish.

M-Medium bodied with an assertive hoppiness,moderate grainy sweetness and a nice dry
finish.

O-Another solid brew from Stone.
